Unlike other system dynamics books I have seen, this book does not discuss Mason loop rule method which is easier to use instead of Block reduction rule method mentioned in this book. I, also, think that this book does not explain very well how to plot Bode Diagrams by hands.
Like other system dynamics books I have seen, this book does not provide the students with the solutions of the questions given at the end of each chapter.
Regardless of its few minuses, this book is still an excellent one and I strongly recommend it.
To overcome its minuses, buy this book as well as " Modern Control System" which is written by Richard C. Dorf & Robert H. Bishop. Modern Control System is also a wonderful book and a very interesting one. It is better than System Dynamics book in that the concepts are explained deeply. Mason loop rule, Block reduction rule, and plotting Bode Diagrams by hands are very well explained in this book. It is easy to understand and very illustrated. Compared to System Dynamics book, this book has 7 excellent appendices plus a fantastic index, which can also be used as a glossary. Additionally, and above all, the solved exampled plus the questions given at the end of each chapter deal with the modern systems, equipments, devices, and with the recent technology available today.
I passed this course depending on these two books plus my instructor's notes and got "B+". I strongly believe that the students using these two books will be in very good shapes.
My negative opinion of the book is shared by everyone I have spoken to about it, and most students scramble to find a better text when they learn how bad this one truly is.
Many examples and problems.
Provides instruction for using Matlab in conjunction with controls.
Presentation of the material is terrible.

They gave me a binder with the pages of the book printed on paper. It looks like someone printed out a pdf version of the textbook. Uncool.Published 22 months ago by Rachel Shaffer
